It’s Official: Sparta Prague Will Relocate to Strahov with a New 35,000-Seat Stadium

Sparta Prague football club will leave Letná after over 100 years to build a new home in Strahov by 2035. This move marks a significant change for the club.

The General Assembly of the Football Association of the Czech Republic (FAČR) took a major step towards this change.

At a meeting in Olomouc, the Association approved Sparta as the winner of an international competition to utilize the dilapidated Evžen Rošický Stadium in Strahov. The club, owned by one of the wealthiest Czechs, Daniel Křetínský, plans to build a new 35,000-seat arena at its own expense.

The new arena, set to be the largest in the country, is expected to be completed by 2035. Sparta will gradually pay for the land over 30 years, with an initial payment of CZK 95 million upon signing the contract.

AC Sparta Prague’s CEO, Tomas Krivda, discussed the plans for the new stadium more openly in the past year and a half.

“The new stadium is crucial for the club’s future. Infrastructure is vital for sustainability and longevity. The new stadium is a huge opportunity for us, especially since last season we had the highest attendance in over 40 years,” Krivda said.

The club won the league title for the second consecutive year after a nine-year gap and sold out all its home games last season. The current Epet Arena at Letná holds just under 19,000 spectators.

“I believe the General Assembly delegates will accept our offer, and we can demonstrate that a modern 35,000-seat stadium can be built in the Czech Republic with private funding,” Krivda wrote on the X network before the vote.
